Assessment Process for CBSE Class 10 Result 2021 released

The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has released the notification mentioning the assessment process for class 10 Result 2021. As per the notification, Class 10 result 2021 will be released on June 20, 2021. The schools are required to evaluate and assess the students based on the criteria issued by the board. 

In an official notice released the board has laid out the policy on the basis of which the marks would be calculated and awarded to students.  Students, however, will have the opportunity to appear for the examinations at a later date in case they are not satisfied with the marks thus awarded.

According to the policy, while 20 marks for each subject will be for internal assessment as every year, 80 marks will be calculated on basis of the students’ performance in various tests or exams throughout the year.

CBSE Examination Controller Sanyam Bhardwaj said, internal assessment marks out of 20, as already awarded by the schools, would remain as it is. For the remaining 80 marks, the schools would give students a weighted average where 10 marks would be from their periodic tests, 30 from Half Yearly and 40 marks from Pre-boards. 

To ensure a fair evaluation, schools have been asked to form a Result Committee including the Principal of the school along with 7 members. The 7-member team would include a schoolteacher each of Mathematics, Social Science, Science, and two languages. Apart from this, there would also be two teachers from a neighboring school who would act as external members. 

The schools will have to form eight-member result committees by May 5. The provision for school-wise distribution of marks as well as finalisation of rationale document will happen by May 10. The school is required to submit the marks by June 5, 2021

To keep the assessment fair, schools have been instructed to clearly define the rationale behind the marks allotted. In case a student has not appeared for any of the assessments conducted by the school, the school is required to call the student and assess him/her by May 15 and will have to finalise the result by May 25. 

Apart from this, the schools would also be required to standardize the marks based on the schools’ performance in previous CBSE Board Examinations. Historical data of the schools would be considered to ensure a wider parity.  

Accordingly, the result committee has also been given the authority to consider Class 9 marks in case they feel that the CBSE 10th Result 2021 is skewed and is not matching the average of the reference year as per the policy.
